Set in the Worsbrough Country Park area of Barnsley, Wigfield Farm has three main functions:
- A working farm producing livestock
- A base for Barnsley College Horticulture and Animal Management courses

A modern horticulture unit supports the learning and development of students following both vocational and recreational courses in horticulture and gardening. Seasonal plants are often available for sale at competetive prices in our on-site shop.
The farm is situated approximately 2 miles south-west of Barnsley next to Worsbrough Country Park. It is near to the Dove Valley Trail section of the Trans-Pennine Trail, and provides a perfect visitor attraction for adults and children.
